Bosch Munitech has recently been appointed to design, manufacture, supply and install two new 900kW, 11kV electrical squirrel cage motors for the Mapleton pump station. The new installation is part of the minor works program and the scope of work includes electrical, automation and mechanical installation.
The Mapleton pump station receives it RAW water from Zuikerbosch pump station which is situated next to the Vaal dam in Gauteng. The water is pumped directly to various stations, with one of them being Mapleton. Once the water leaves the Mapleton pump station the water is then pumped to Vlaklaagte reservoir and is directed to Brakpan, Benoni, Nigel, and other surrounding suburbs. This installation has been categorized as an essential service and Bosch Munitech will continue to work through the lock down to ensure that these areas are able to receive treated water continually.
